Saskatchewan Professionals in Infection Control

Welcome to IPAC SASKPIC!

SASKPIC is the Saskatchewan chapter of Infection Prevention and Control Canada (IPAC Canada) and provides a forum for networking, education and collaboration. We also provide educational funding related to infection prevention and control for our members. Our chapter is currently comprised of 71 members - 30 with CIC designation, including:

  • Persons employed or interested in infection prevention and control, such as physicians, managers, lab technicians, nurses, public health inspectors, etc.
  • Industry representatives.

New members are encouraged to join. If you are interested, please contact any of the Chapter Executive listed on the "Quick Index" menu of our website.

The SASKPIC website also contains a Provincial Infection Control Network of Saskatchewan (PICNS) menu. Provincial guidelines and protocols, such as Guidelines for the Management of Clostridium difficile Infections (CDI) in all Health Care Settings, Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) in Continuing Care Settings, and Surgical Site Infection (SSI) Surveillance Protocol: Saskatchewan can be accessed here, as well as meeting notes and local education opportunities. We encourage everyone to take advantage of these resources!

The Virtual IPAC SASKPIC Fall Conference and AGM will be held in the September 18, 2020. This education session and meeting is open to all those interested in networking, promoting good infection prevention and control practices in our daily activities, and making safety a priority!

We hope you  are able to attend!

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the lives of millions around the world, forcing us to adapt to the “new normal”.  We have been left with the incredible task to UNITE AND CONQUER this pandemic.  Healthcare workers have been doing an outstanding job working around the clock to ensure people affected by the virus are supported and society is doing their best to try to “flatten the curve”.  We can accomplish anything if we UNITE AND CONQUER!
